A 268-foot waterfall in the northwest United States, located east of Seattle on the Snoqualmie River between Snoqualmie and Fall City, Washington.
#washington_state #landscape #seattle #falls #travel_usa #travel #nature #west_usa #AquaTrove The journey here has many fun twists and turns. Definitely worth the hike down to the lower observation area! A perfect day to visit Snoqualmie Falls with the summer sun shining to make a spectacular rainbow. Salish Lodge is visible at the top of the falls. They provide lodging, a spa and a fine dining experience with fresh local Northwest fare.
For reservations:
We obviously hiked all the way to the bottom of the trail. Then if you want to get close to the water, you must climb over the fence and down a slight bit of a treacherous climb, but worth the view. We made it with our kids as well as many other people, so it's not too bad...just be cautious.
#waterlust This is such an awesome waterfall year-round. It's an easy hike to the bottom and then although there is a The view from the observation decks at Snoqualmie Falls is incredible. It’s easily accessible and there is plenty of parking even when it gets busy & crowded. I made it there for sunrise before work a few days ago and was completely blown away. A view over Snoqualmie Falls from Salish Lodge & Spa Autumn is here #autumn #hiking #colorful #waterfalls Snoqualmie Falls is one of Washington's most iconic waterfalls, and for good reason. I was able to catch the waterfall encircled by some beautiful fog, which I shot from the main observation deck. If you plan on shooting photos at this location, be prepared to battle some crowds as it can get pretty busy here, especially in the Summer months. I'm spoiled. I can never get enough of viewing and taking pictures of this waterfall. So photogenic. Chasing Falls #autumn #hiking #colorful #waterfalls This spectacular view of Snoqualmie Falls is a short 40-minute drive from Seattle and near many beautiful trails in the Snoqualmie region
#lifeatexpedia #SpringFun #TheGreatOutdoors Caught a rainbow! The opening of the hiking trail to the bottom has been delayed until sometime in the fall of 2013. Beautiful spot that requires no hiking! Beautiful picture from Snoqualmie Falls yesterday It's the best time to go see this famous powerful beautiful waterfall right now. (Spring/early summer). Rainbows and waterfalls. #hiking Driving on i-90 around Snoqualmie mountains are all snow covered and make for a memorable drive!! Winter in Northwest is special thnx to all the mountains...
#roadtrip This is from the bottom viewpoint, which is a short half mile hike down from the top, or you can drive to a closer parking lot near the bottom and walk over that way too.
Snoqualmie Falls is only about an hour outside of Seattle and is a pretty impressive sight! There's not much of a trial for hiking, but it's on the way to other hiking spots further East of Seattle. I'd recommend a quick trip there! Autumn Drive- Snoqualmie Valley #autumn #fallseason #lovemytown #roadtrip #colorful The classic view of Snoqualmie Falls.
This is basically a drive up spot with the parking lot just a couple hundred feet from this spot.
When the waterfall is full like this, you will get wet from all the mist.
The size of the waterfall is about 1/4 of the size in the summer so the best time to visit is in the winter/spring. I have yet to hike down into the bottom of the falls, but it is beautiful from the top! This was taken Dec 2014 when there was a higher than usual water flow Snoqualmie Falls during cloudy September afternoon #Waterfall #Snoqualmie #LifeAtExpedia Early morning drive somewhere in north bend Washington they were caught off guard 😉 Obligatory waterfall picture #hiking #outdoors After the wife's marathon Check at the Snoqualmie falls for a breathtaking view! You can drive to the top and bottom or do an easy hike between the conversation decks. The hike is less than half a mile but can be steep at times. Such beautiful view! Something you should not miss if you are in Seattle or bellevue! Snoqualmie Falls View fro the top - of Snoqualmie Falls. to the led tint he picture is the Salish lodge you can stay the night, eat dinner, etc.
It's an easy hike to the bottom and you can get even better pictures down there :)
#waterlust Short drive from Seattle to enjoy a walk in the forest and sit by the Riverside!
#hiking I took my step Son here on a beautiful weekend. The falls are gorgeous. . Can't miss the falls if you're visiting the Seattle area! Long expose near snoqualmie falls. #canon #ziess prime Great place to check out if your in the Seattle area. About a 40 min drive June 2017 #AquaTrove Cute old house & garden near the Railway Museum :) A closer view of the fall from the upper viewpoint of the park. Little coffee shack at the base of the Cascades. The fall colors were on display today at the falls. I can't wait until the trail re-opens in March 2013. Fuzzy tree on the trail to lower falls.

(May 2017) Snoqualmie Falls Great evening shot at Snoqualmie Falls Another random pic of a Sapsucker while practicing with my T5i. Saw this wild flower growing and looked like an orchid. In the background is the Fall. Beautiful Lodge next to the Snoqualmie Fall. You get a breathtaking view up close. Make sure to hike down the trail for another beautiful shot! #springfun Amazing waterfalls even in the freezing rain. #TroverDetour - the trains on display are a photographer's dream. An afternoon here is worth the side trip. #snoqualmiefalls Not sure what kind of shrub this is but you can see them all over the trail going down to the bottom of the fall. It's a popular spot to visit but the short 1/2 mile hike gives you a pretty amazing view of the falls. #lifeatexpedia This was a very adventurous moment with me and my wife we loved every second of this amazing waterfall! #AquaTrove Twin Peaks climbing over boulders, listening to the waterfall, perfect autumn weather :: snoqualmie falls, washington (this is also the location for the opening credits of the original twin peaks!) #takeahike The river rushes down the falls in all it's glory. Snoqualmie falls Interesting perspective from the bridge over Snoqualmie Falls Trail from the upper falls viewpoints to the lower falls viewpoint. Chasing the light. Ahhh, happy girl You don't need a lot of time at this spot but worth it to see if you are in the area. One of the The Salish Honeybee cocktail Food was great at the Salish Lodge restaurant: crispy duck leg shown.
In the am, the Belgian waffles, and the ham hock hash w/ Walla Walla onion were delicious, and the chocolate shavings and cinnamon whipped cream provided on the side with my latte were a nice treat.
Three examples of drinks made with honey from the lodge's apiary. I highly recommend the Harvest Moon- it isn't as sweet as it sounds! They had a good, non-intrusive singer on guitar, and the food looked yummy - a little more I was taking the pictures of the stairs from the upper view point but haven't noticed the writings on the steps before so I took a picture of one of them. They used words to describe the fall. After storm at snoqualmie falls AMAZING. Nothing like Niagra but mighty impressive Drive right up and see a this piece of pop culture... and nature. Onroute to the waterfalls Snoqualmie falls
. Vibrant Fall colors at Snoqualmie Falls Park🍃🌿🍁 Salish Lodge over Snoqualmie Falls On a cold winter's day, the mist from the falls does amazing things. #TroverDetour - the Snoqualmie Falls are beautiful, but most tourists miss the display of railroad history at the Community Park and nearby Northwest Railway Museum. The plaque reads: Did you know there is a Wallaby Ranch outside of Seattle?!? For $60 a group, you get to learn about Wallabys and how they are born! Then after the slideshow, Rex shows you around the Ranch where you can feed and pet them! These are the two red wallabys on the Ranch! #lifeAtExpedia #wallabys 9th hole at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge on a beautiful, Eclipse filled day! #nofilter only the eclipse! Random pic practicing with my Rebel T5i . One of my all time fav's! They only carry this around fall I think. The brewery is in the middle of the town and is surrounded with rich logging history, trains and things to see.
The impressive Snoqualmie falls are just up the street.
